20 000 farms on sale – don’t buy stolen property!

Black First Land First (BLF) is informed that white farmers are selling their farms in a panic to avoid the people’s land expropriation without compensation revolution. BLF has set in motion a process to establish Land Expropriation Committees across the nation to take back the land. Now, Farmers Weekly reports that over 20 000 farms are on sale – the highest number to be put on sale in the last 20 years.

BLF warns everyone not to buy stolen property. All the land in white hands is stolen property. Those who buy stolen goods must know that they are involved in criminal activity. They must not be surprised when the people take back their land. BLF reiterates – do not buy stolen property! Don’t become an accomplice to criminal transactions. The land has its rightful owners who are coming to take it back.

BLF never threatened Dr Khoza

Black First Land First (BLF) notes with disdain the desperate campaign by the white media to tarnish the name of our revolutionary movement through fake news. BLF is aware that the white media, in its quest to prop up white monopoly capital, has resorted to lying by manufacturing fake news.

The story peddled by the white owned media about BLF’s telephone number being associated with the alleged threats on the life of Dr Makhosi Khoza, is a cheap fabrication. BLF does not and will not fight black people, including those we regard as askaris. This fact is known to the white owned media that continues to play ignorant. In this respect, the white owned media hopes to generate a situation of black on black violence in our country.

BLF and its members would NEVER make such threats to a black person. We hold high the principle of “peace amongst blacks”. We also have an official policy called the “BLACK CODE ON HOUSE NIGGERS & SELLOUTS”. The BLACK CODE mandates BLF to defend all blacks even those we disagree with. There is no way that BLF could threaten any black person. We reject with contempt the attempt to link our movement to the phone number through which the calls were ostensibly made.

BLF believes that there must be a white person or persons behind the attempt to smear our organization. We don’t regard Dr Khoza as a political anything. She is just loud and irrelevant. Moreover since she is black we won’t, under any circumstances, threaten her. The white owned media needs to understand what BLF stands for and stop peddling cheap lies.

BLF is under massive attack from white monopoly capital. The media reports under reply are generated as part of the onslaught on the organization. We won’t be deterred. Land must be returned by any means necessary!

BLF welcomes President Zuma’s support of black lawyers

President Zuma has yet again shown admirable leadership with his swift positive response to the demands of black lawyers. The lawyers, led by the Black Lawyers Association (BLA), staged a protest march to the Presidency yesterday. In response President Zuma promptly, and on the same day, ordered the Minister of Justice to meet the demands of the black lawyers. That’s what is called leadership. BLF commends the President of the country for such exemplary leadership.

Black lawyers in South Africa suffer the impact of racism. The briefing patterns by both the State and the private sector attest to the established anti black practices. It is necessary for black lawyers to assist in the fight to end racism in this country so that all black people can get treated with the dignity they deserve. Black lawyers are black before they are lawyers.

BLF calls on all black professionals to join the struggle against racism and white monopoly capital. No black person can be free from racism irrespective of her or his level of education, competency or experience. We must unite and defeat racism. We must defeat the economic exclusion of all black people.

BLF will ask for a meeting with the BLA so as to take the struggle forward. We will also monitor the implementation of the Presidential order and to this end shall provide support whenever necessary. BLF calls on President Zuma to continue being an hands-on President. We ask that the President responds with the same speed, as he did regarding the issues of the black lawyers, to all the legitimate concerns of our people.
